Electoral Register

The electoral register is not updated until 15th February.  Therefore anyone who registered to vote in the last year, or changed the address to which their polling card is sent, will not appear on the electoral register in the event of there being an election prior to 15th February.  Members of the public should check with their local authority to ensure that they are put on the supplementary register, and would need to do this at least 15 days before the date of the election.

Where there’s a Will……

You know the saying, however, where there’s a Will there is also a clear and concise statement of a person’s wishes on how they want their property to be dealt with on their death.  Making a Will ensures that when you die, your estate is dealt with the way you want it to be.  That is not to say that your property goes to the State if you don’t make a Will, it is dealt with under the rules of intestacy, which is for another day!

Below is a link to a law society article which you may find very helpful in explaining and assisting you in preparing to make a Will.
